It was a night of battles on the ballroom floor during week three of Dancing With The Stars as Jana Kramer and her partner, Gleb Savchenko, faced off against music mogul Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and his partner, Allison Holker.
Due to the presidential debates, Monday night’s (Sept. 26) episode of DWTS was cut from it’s normal two-hour show to a one-hour program, but that didn’t mean it was short on entertainment.
Jana and Gleb kicked off the night dancing the jive. The theme of the show was a Face Off—remaining celebrities were paired up and pitted against each other in a battle round to keep themselves safe from elimination. As the two couples faced off with the same dance, the couple with the highest scores from the judges would be safe from elimination, while the losing couple would be put up for possible elimination.
“I’m worried. That man [Babyface] has got charm,” Jana said before taking the floor. “Do you see his swagger? He’s got swagger.”
That worry didn’t last long as Jana came out on top—by one point—scoring a 26 out of 40 points. The scores and the jive were not her best—6 from Carrie Ann Inaba, 7 from Len Goodman, 6 from Juilanne Hough and 7 from Bruno Tonioli—but it gave her the win against Babyface, who scored 25 out of 40 points.
We can all relax now. Jana is safe from elimination and will continue dancing for another week. Tune in to Dancing With The Stars Monday and Tuesday nights on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.
Watch both Jana Kramer and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds dance the jive and decide who you think danced better.
